Bio and Links
Bio Photo Georgia (Decatur, and now Cherokee County) has been home for two thirds (most) of my life. Two sons, three granddaughters, and three grandsons, all of whom are Georgians.
An Amarillo, Texas native (and 10 yr. native of Fort Worth), and seven generations removed from Patrick and Margaret McCullough Phinney of Chester (District)County, SC, dating from 1786.
History at times surpasses genealogy as the greater interest. This site is a compilation of stories from individuals responsible for that history, and it never ceases to improve with each addition.
Paternal Lineage: Phinney, Crosser, Wright, McCullough
Maternal Lineage : Daniel, Newman, Talley, Magee

From Rebekah Reed's profile
~~ After the game, the king and the pawn go into the same box. ~~Italian Proverb.~~

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

...I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference...

Robert Frost

RE: Georgia Hendrick
Hi Wes,
You're right! Georgia's birth certificate does not have Cherokee Co as her place of birth, but whatever I copied from the internet and pasted to her birth certificate, did have Cherokee. I tried to find it, but had no luck. So it looks like Cherokee is an error. Sorry about that. I didn't notice the difference when I suggested the change. I did find something about her death from the Dept of Commerce and posted it. Thanks for pointing out the error. Sandy

Thanks Wes for adding the changes and catching Nancy's date. I guess it could be Emery's father who also was named Emery. I deleted the edit. Appreciate your help! Kelly

Would you transfer two graves in Eldorendo Cemetery to me? R G Priest #12315001 and Gladys Priest #12315006 ? They are my father's sister and her husband. I would appreciate this. Thanks, Jacqueline

Wes - Yes, you are correct regarding John's mother. I put in another request to remove Charity as his mother. Sorry for the confusion, been looking at this too long! Best regards - Bill C.
